England fucks up working out where people are living

The punchline, not shown above, is that loads of people are almost certainly giving the wrong details at the point of testing (because they're encouraged to give the address where they're registered with a GP and the address that will pass identity checks in the case of home testing).

You might think that the obvious thing to do when designing the testing and results system would be to 1) capture either the postcode used to find a nearby[1] testing centre or the address used to deliver the home testing kit and 2) include this with the results data.
 1. Which for Weston-super-Mare apparently means Cardiff, not Bristol.

If you weren't able to imagine doing this in March 2020, you might have thought of doing this at some point before tens of thousands people likely to be poor at social distancing near-simultaneously travelled from their usual place of residence to temporary residences in the Autumn.

We’re seeing the fucking consequences of this in Liverpool now. Meanwhile had potentially game changing results in Exeter where we didnt need addresses - single building monitoring, preddos spot on. Blodwyn the Corona Whisperer.

You're more effective than the collective gentle suggestion of three nations, apparently.
